The LG G6 is a phone I hold near and dear to my heart. In fact, despite upgrading to the Pixel 2, I’m still on the fence about getting rid of my G6. It’s a reliable phone, and it’s by no means an antique. In fact, it may be one of the first few phones to see Android 8.0, outside of the obvious Nexus and Pixel phones.
LG G6 Oreo update incoming!
According to a listing spotted on Geekbench, LG is in the testing phases of the Oreo update for its 2017 flagship. And while LG has been historically on the slower side, in recent years they seem to have caught on to the importance of timely updates.
For the last two years, LG’s G-series flagships have been among the first to receive a new major Android update. LG began rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the G4 in November 2015, while the G6 Android 7.0 Nougat update was released in November last year in South Korea.
Oddly enough, the word has been a mum from LG, in terms of its plans to update devices to Android 8.0. We’ve yet to hear a peep about when (or even if) phones like the G6, V20, and V30 will even see an update. They presumably will, of course – fingers crossed for you V20 owners – but it would be nice to get something directly from LG.
At any rate, this spotting is, if nothing else, quite promising. Hopefully, we’ll have something tasty here in the next few weeks. I’ll personally be keeping an eye on this one. Like I said – I still have mine right here on the desk in front of me; I’m just as anxious for the LG G6 Oreo update as those of you using it as a daily driver.
While we’re on the subject of LG, I should have my V30 review unit in at some point of today. The FedEx man is already an hour late with my overnight delivery as I type this post.
Happy Monday, Y’all!
